Nearly 25,000 couples are expected to exchange vows on Friday - a perfect palindrome day. And to compare, the number of registered weddings on the same Friday last year (11/12/10) was just 1,612.

If you don't believe it, look at the numbers for Friday weddings in 2011.

11/4/11 - 1,916

11/11/11 - 24,902

11/18/11 - 1,635

11/25/11 - 1,540

Typically Friday weddings aren't as popular as Saturday events, and in many cases it's cheaper to hold a wedding on a Friday night.
